Experienced campers visited over Labor Day weekend. Usually we are at state-run campgrounds, we are a little leery about privately run camps as sometimes management isn't interested in enforcing policy or cleanliness in order to make a quick buck. You will not find this at Gunstock. Check in was super easy. Sites are mostly back to back in open areas, but there is enough room for everyone not to be on top of each other. Sites were level; we had hook ups which looked like they were all new (we were in poplar field). Every site had fire ring and picnic tables; there were even a couple extra strewn here and there for those who had additional needs. Large area for kids to play, decent sized pool, and playground. Lots of children running around and on bikes, which is always good to see, and tons of dogs, all of whom were relatively well-behaved. Baths/showers were super clean and plentiful, as were laundry areas. "Clean Team" was everywhere to be seen. Dumpsters were maintained-no trash lying about whatsoever. Other campers were respectful and pleasant and socially distant. Quiet hours started well before the 10pm deadline; this was a mix of young and old and everyone did their part to make sure their fellow campers had a good time and stayed safe. Everyone wore masks in common areas, for the most part. Gunstock staff did an outstanding job overall, with every camp site filled and lots of people to take care of. Disappointing that adventure park was not up and running, but there is more than enough in the lakes region to keep anyone occupied. Convenient dump station and checkout took seconds. Other campgrounds should take note; Gunstock does it right. We highly recommend this campground.

Fall foliage is the main reason for our New Hampshire trip, so while looking for hiking trails, we decided to drive past Gunstock Resort hoping for trail maps. While there, we learned they were running chair lifts ($10 per person per direction) up/down the mountain. We decided to ride the lift to the top and then hike down the 2.5 Miles down to the resort parking area. Boy are we glad we did it in that order! The hike down took about 2 hours, stopping a few times foe scenic views, pics etc. Pay attention to the trail markers. There were a few times we weren’t exactly sure we were on the right path. We are in our mid/late 40s and in ok condition. To have hiked up would have been too much for us. There are parts that were very steep and loose gravel. Going down we just took our time and baby steps. So glad we did it! We then enjoyed a picnic lunch before heading to put our feet up for a rest!

I took the summer chairlift ride up the mountain. The tickets were reasonably priced and didn't require reservations which made it easier to visit in case of not so great weather. It was a nice ride up and down the mountain. The views were nice from the top.

The first time I went there (since I was a young kid) the line to get rentals and tickets on MLK Day weekend was one hour and 15 minutes with two entire computers to get people rentals. Further....the line to get rentals snakes down a stair well into sorta a basement area with no doors and very few windows. Personally I think when it's packed with people it's unsafe. That's just my honest opinion. That said after all that you get an electronic e ticket like a credit card and you can just reload that and go get your rentals. But not anymore. Now even with that you have to get in line anyway at the damn welcome center, get your form, then head down to get your boots and poles, then finally go through the last hoop and go upstairs to get skis. So the form on your phone is worthless and they wasted your time. Hello to unnecessary lines at Gunstock again. I hope you love that.

This is not a mountain resort! It's a drive to the mountain. The rooms are all adjoining and other ppl staying there can look directly into your room! All the curtains must be closed for any privacy; day or night! Don't stay here if your a female alone; it does not feel safe and they have No overnight staff. The phone number goes to voice mail. That's comforting in an emergency? I was ripped off my hard earned birthday money and wkend of fun! Thanks for nothing! You should be ashamed at your lack of honesty and integrity. I should of received a refund of $358.00. You did not have that right to keep it! Comp me one night sometime this year was your answer, so I try to book July 3rd. Nope 3 night minimum! Some racket you have going!!!

We were looking for something for an 8 year old to do that would be a wonderful memory for her. She had never seen snow as she grew up on the West Coast. Gunstock offered a 90 minute ski lesson package that included rentals. She LOVED IT, and the adults loved watching her learn from the warmth of the huge fire in the lodge. Casey was the young man who spent the time with her, and he was fantastic. A quick learner she was soon on the chair lift and looking like a pro on the trail!! It was a fantastic day for all, and we highly recommend it.

Don't bother wasting your money. Went last year and it was amazing. We were so excited to come again this year but it was a major disappointment. The tubing hill was cut in half and the mountain coaster was closed because I guess enforcing wearing gloves like masks it's not safe. Our 12 year old wanted to leave in 20 mins. Gunstock why did you ruin a great thing?

This was my first time at your mountain ..from the moment we pulled in with the person directing traffic to our last moment at Pistol Pub with our waitress made it feel great to support a local resort instead of corporate resort. The friendliness was shown throughout and can not wait to come back for more.

Took my children skiing for the first time. 11 and 8 years old. They took lessons. The bunny slopes were perfect for them. Slopes are great for intermediate skiers as well. Not crowded on a weekday. Not far from Boston. Lodge had everything you would need. Not as pricey as other New Hampshire ski resorts farther north

E-bike tour at Gunstock Mountain. Great experience. 1st time on an e-bike and really enjoyed it. 8 people (the max) on our tour. Social distancing practiced during the set-up and then masks optional for the ride since we were all 6 feet apart. Megan was our tour guide and super helpful learning the bikes but also made it a lot of fun. Great way to see the mountain!

Mary, Thank you for your review. This is our first year with e-bike tours and we certainly love it when our guests enjoy the tour. I agree e-biking is a great way to see our mountain. We hope you will be back to explore our mountain trails again soon. Kristen
